Morning after mass shooting, Capital Gazette publishes Friday edition

He was previously a news features writer and, before that, the paper's pop music critic.

Ramos, armed with a shotgun and smoke grenades, allegedly shot out the entrance windows to the Capital Gazette newsroom just before 3 p.m. Thursday. He claimed in court documents that his perspective was not fairly represented.

Trump said he is thinking of the survivors and the families of the "horrific, horrible" murders.

The Capital Gazette Families Fund is being managed through the Community Foundation of Anne Arundel County, owner tronc announced.

Prosecutor Wes Adams did not give any details about the escape plan. He says Ramos entered through the front door and "worked his way through the office".

In July 2011, Ramos was charged with criminal harassment in the District Court of Maryland and pleaded guilty. In 2013, Marquardt said he had even spoken to police about filing a restraining order against Ramos. Ramos is charged with five counts of first-degree murder in Thursday's mass shooting.

The paper did not want to press charges for fear of inflaming the situation, and a detective concluded he was no threat.

Police Chief Timothy Altomare also said at a news conference Friday that it is "absolutely untrue" that suspect Jarrod W. Ramos mutilated his fingertips. Then he headed to the sunset vigil in downtown Annapolis, near the water. "Strongly condemn the evil act of senseless violence in Annapolis, MD", White House press secretary Sarah Sanders tweeted.

It went on to name the victims, and then said "tomorrow this page will turn to its steady objective of offering our readers informed opinion about the world around them, that they might be better citizens". "But today, we are speechless".




Memorial services for two of the five victims killed in a shooting at the Maryland newspaper have been scheduled for next week. "His intent was to cause harm". "I did not feel that I could do it in a manner that wouldn't tip off our location to the shooter", he said. I was praying the entire time I was under that desk.

According to a Friday statement reportedly released by Stephen T. Moyer, the secretary of Maryland's Department of Public Safety and Correctional Services, the facial recognition scan of Ramos "performed as designed".

Authorities on Thursday said the gunman appeared to have a "vendetta" against the paper and had staged a "targeted attack".

Hartley is no longer an employee of the newspaper.

Four of the dead victims were journalists with the paper and the fifth a sales assistant.

Police say he used a pump-action shotgun in the attack.

State's attorney Wes Adams said the judge's finding that Ramos is a danger to society is justified because of evidence that he carefully planned the attack, barricading the back door so victims couldn't escape, before using "a tactical approach in hunting down and shooting innocent victims". Journalists crawled under desks and sought other hiding places as they heard the gunman's footsteps and repeated blasts of the weapon.

In an apparent response to President Donald Trump's constant attacks on the media, the staffers wrote, "We won't forget being called an enemy of the people".
